I've just ask a question on just this topic and as you seem knowledgable I will ask you direct.
I had my m8s stolen and was looking to replace it with something similar but with 5ghtz capability for Virgin fibre. I'd like the best processor possible and at least 2gb ram and maybe a newer version of android. What would you recommend I do? Wait for new models to be available or is there a box avalible now? Thanks Mark,

Great price. Qintex is knocking out an S912 model with a few more features but nearer 100 USD / 77 GBP (plus £20 if you want it in less than a month).

Sounds good - So will they play / stream Youtube 4k?
#5
The hardware I would assume is more than capable. Heck the s905/s905x would be more than capable surely.

Interesting to see how much faster these new models are.

Also found this on the site for a few $$$ less:

This one supposedly has wireless AC plus gigabit ethernet but I'll remain skeptical until I see it confirmed!

I want an s912 box as the only benefit for me is that it should be able to run the dolphin wii emulator on it. I have had a mini mxiii which is great but just not good enough for to run dolphin :(

I just ordered the Nexbox A5 2G/16G version (Dual Band WIFI). I got it mainly because it used the S905X CPU that has the ability to run Android 6, 4K VP9 (the Youtube codec) and the new HDR feature. Also being able to use external memory as internal memory (basically you can use a 32GB class 10 SD card as internal memory for your apps) was an awesome feature.

I am regretting my buy.

I wish I waited for the Nexbox A1. The Nexbox A1 will be out fairly soon and will use the new Amlogic S912 processor. That CPU is going to kick ass. Spec wise it won't be hugely more powerful than the S905X, but the GPU will blow the S905 Mali-450MP out of the water. It will be using the Mali-T830 GPU, a very powerful gaming GPU. It will also support OpenGL 3.0. It should be able to run Portal/Half-Life 2/Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance etc. (PS3 level graphics)

Honestly I wished I held out as the new Amlogic S912 boxes are going to be awesome and fairly cheap.

Bit of a disclaimer:

For anyone thinking about buying one of these boxes bear in mind they are just computers that are half assedly setup. They never just work out of the box. Many of the apps that will be pre-installed will be outdated or broken by time you get the device. So if you are not willing to learn how to set them up and maintain them. I would advise you to avoid them. You would be better of getting something 'that just works' like the "Nvidia Shield TV" that is well maintained.

Because what will happen is after a few months these cheap Android TV boxes will break. But if you know how to update them yourself and how to manual setup Kodi, they are great cheap options as they normally have pretty good hardware. It is just the software that sucks. If you are willing to do some leg work to keep them updated, they are pretty awesome.

But if you want something that 'Just Works', I would avoid them. Unless you know someone willing to keep it updated for you.

One of the features that I still love about my Tronsmart Orion is the inclusion of the Mali-T764 GPU, which even today betters the many cheaper Mali offerings seen since.

The T830 does look like it could be a big step up and as you mention, the greatest benefit will be for gamers.

http://www.cnx-software.com/ is probably the best, then freaktab for the roms/firmware for the boxes.

CNX is more for reviews.

Freaktab is where you will get more interaction of users and support.

I just got a cheap one from bang good. Setup was easy and was really pleased with performance and speed.... Until it just died after 3 days use. Looking for a decent model now.
